Trump weighs announcing 2024 run this summer amid Jan 6 revelations

The former president has repeatedly hinted at a 2024 run since he left office on Jan. 20, 2021, two weeks after the attempted insurrection and one week after the House impeached him for a second time.

  • Many advisers believe Donald Trump will run for president again in 2024.
  • The one question: Whether Trump will announce this summer or after the November mid-term elections.
  • Among the factors affecting Trump’s timetable: a bevy of Jan. 6 investigations.
  • Aides offer a traditional caveat: Trump could change his mind about anything at any time.

WASHINGTON – Donald Trump’s prospective campaign to reclaim the presidency in 2024 faces legal and political jeopardy, but allies say some of the potential roadblocks – including the threat of prosecution – are actually motivating him to run.

As he ponders when and how to announce, Trump is dealing with new revelations about his conduct during the Jan. 6 insurrection of 2021, pushback from a rising number of Republicans, and, above all, the prospect of an unprecedented indictment of a former president.
